DYnamic identification and MOnitoring of scoured BRIdgeS under earthquake hazard

We have recently won the European research project “DYMOBRIS”, as part of the H2020-SERA-TA project (Transnational Access Facilities). We will be testing large scale bridge pier specimens under mulitple hazards (flood-induced scour and earthquake excitations).
